I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?

My offer was accepted! Yay! But my offer was $45k over listed price. I’m feeling sick! My realtor and I agreed it was undervalued based on recent comps nearby and there’s a lot of development happening around the neighborhood so I’m hoping the house’s value will continue to go up. I love the house and after months of looking I’m so glad they accepted but I just hate how much over asking I’m paying for. Anyone else immediately feel this way? Make me feel better? Or call me an idiot, idk what…
